The stimulus bill will allow nonitemizers to deduct up to $300 in cash giving for the 2020 tax year. Donations to donor-advised-fund accounts would not qualify for the nonitemizer deduction.For those who itemize, the bill lifts the cap on annual giving from 60 percent of adjusted gross income to 100 percent. For corporate charitable giving, the bill raises the annual limit from 10 percent to 25 percent of taxable income. The cap on deductibility of food donations from corporations would increase to 25 percent of taxable income, up from the current 15 percent cap.Please consult your personal tax expert for tax advice and a Northern Advancement specialist at 630-620-2106 to learn about the latest opportunities to contribute to.
